beer brand and type? Or do you shop the inventory at your favorite beer cave, and take home a different brew each time you buy?
I ask the question because my favorite craft beer purveyor is located inside a huge, privately owned pharmacy nearby my home. In a corner of the pharmacy is a 60 foot long wall shelved with four packs and six packs of craft brewers from, literally around the world. A second wall creates an L in the corner of the store and that wall contains singles for mix-and-match sales. The shelves reach up from just off the floor, to about nine feet in the air.
A trip there for me, usually lasts at least 40 minutes to an hour, because I read a lot of bottle labels and cartons before I settle on a beer for my day. Although I have a half dozen or so, favorite brews, I do try new on occasion–especially if a brewer has introduced a new Porter to my area.
So, what is your modus operandi when heading out to pick up some beer?
